not know who the judges are. in mississippi in 1990, of course, i am from mississippi. the winning justice spent an average of $25,000. that is not that long ago, in 1990. by 2000, the average winning campaign for the supreme court in mississippi was up to $1 million. that amount of time, he sought exponential amounts of money. it came about through special interests. i think they thought they could see these elections which turned out to be fairly easy picking and they could pump lots of money into it. call role grove -- karl rove had a couple million dollars invested in it. he had his interests. people saw the opportunity there and started putting money into judicial elections. it was fairly easy to influence of that point. >> i agree with of the remarks that were just made. there is less people in montana then in half of washington, d.c. it has typically been a low- budget, low campaign contributions state. in montana you can be appointed if there is a vacancy in the office. at that time, the largest campaign contribution that could be made for a justice on the supreme court was $250. i
